Gasoline

Women In Music Part. III (HAIM Album) | 2021

Off of HAIM’s 2020 album “Women In Music Pt. III”, “Gasoline” is a sensual song about a possibly-dysfunctional relationship. Taylor is featured on the remix of the track which was released on February 19, 2021.

The “Gasoline” remix marks the returning of a favor, or reversal of a spotlight, since HAIM made a featured appearance on Taylor’s “evermore” album in December. With HAIM taking on backing vocals, that number, “no body, no crime,” was a light-hearted murder ballad that harked back to Taylor’s country days and had a main character, Este, named after one of the Haim sisters.

BACKGROUND AND RELEASE
The three sisters teased fans with a potential team-up with Taylor earlier in the week, before eagle-eyed fans spotted she was credited on a new version of the track “Gasoline” on a page on ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), a service songwriters use to register their material for royalty payments. Regarding the remix with Taylor, the sisters wrote on their Instagram:

“Since we released ‘Women In Music Part. III’ in June, Taylor had always told us that ‘Gasoline’ was her favorite. So when we were thinking about ways to reimagine some of the tracks from the record, we immediately thought of her. She brought such amazing ideas and new imagery to the song and truly gave it a new life. Thank you Taylor, for adding your incredible voice and spirit to a track that means so much to us.” — HAIM

Taylor and HAIM first hooked up when Taylor invited the sisters to open 17 dates on her “1989 World Tour” in 2015.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: HAIM]
You took me back
But you shouldn’t have
Now it’s your fault if I mess around
I took a drag
But I shouldn’t have
Now I’m coughing up like I
Never smoked a pack

[Chorus: HAIM]
Gasoline, pretty please
I want to get off
But you’re such a tease
Throw the keys back to me
Go on and kick off your boots
In the passenger seat

[Verse 2: Taylor Swift]
I get sad, you know I get sad
And I can’t look past what I’m sad about
You did me bad
And I did it back
You needed ass, well, what’s
Wrong with that?

[Chorus: HAIM & Taylor Swift]
Gasoline, pretty please
I want to get off
But you’re such a tease
Throw the keys back to me
Go on and kick off your boots
In the passenger seat

[Bridge: HAIM]
We’re watching the sunrise from the kitchen counter
When you lie in between my legs, it doesn’t matter
You say you wanna go slower but I wanna go faster
Faster and faster

[Outro: HAIM]
Gasoline, pretty please
I want to get off
But you’re such a tease
